The skin on my face burns and itches as well as my throat..Doc did blood test for common food allergy-negative! wont eat! scared of anaphylaxis now!

2nd opinion: Inhalant or food allergies do not cause prolonged facial burning or itching. However throat itching (provided no throat closure) can be present if someone has eaten a food and particularly certain fruits. The latter is due to cross-sensitivity to a pollen (birch, ragweed). You need to consult a b/c allergist to pin this down. I usually test with the actual fruits instead of extracts. ...Read more

What's the significance of second degree skin burns?

What's the significance of second degree skin burns?

Matter of degree: There are 3 degrees of burn-1, 2, and 3 graded by severity. Sunburn would be a typical 1st degree burn, blistering from steam or a hot surface that is very painful would be typical for grade2. In grade3 burns the injury is so severe that the pain nerves are destroyed and paradoxically there is less pain. The crucial factor is how much surface area of the skin is involved. ...Read more

How long will it take for skin burns to heal from an antiseptic (savlon)?

How long will it take for skin burns to heal from an antiseptic (savlon)?

Fast Healing: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation ( red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more

I got my skin burns with a hot wax ..Its a 3rd degree burn......Plz suggest me some medicine or a home remedie medicine .....?

SImple basic care: Burns are response of the tissues to injury from heat. It is simply inflammation which means increase blood flow to promote healing. Depth determines care. Use of ice worsens already injured skin. Cool water soaks help as can taking anti-inflammation medicines like Motrin or advil (ibuprofen). Avoid any further damage as this can cause scarring . Good skin cream applied daily/gently helps, keep it covered. ...Read more
